Alternative Paradigm in Good Governance for Combating Corruption

Abstract

We’ve been for a long time describing the relationship between a government and its people as social contract, in which the government becomes a ruler because it has received mandate from or is tied with a contract with the people  — shortly from ones it represents. Ruling is its job, and that is what the government is paid for. This concept provides people with a right to choose and even dismiss their political leaders according to the positive law endorsed by the parliament as the representatives of the people in  the country. Shortly we can say that the government-people relationship is no other than an employee-employer relationship. This kind of relationship has failed to make the government fulfill its obligation because it deteriorates the government’s responsibility, as part of the citizens, to work together with the people in bringing prosperity for all. The large number of corruption cases in the country may serve as an evidence.

We will then discuss different paradigms on the government-people relationship as a model for good governance. This might not be the first study keenly focusing on the equality between the government and the people under the law, however it also presents both as an integrated system. Lastly I would like to offer suitable and implementable principles on good governance from the Islamic point of view. The principles will bring the concept of good governance into reality, help the government rule people and give them real prosperity, and eradicate any immoral cultures like corruption.

Keywords: corruption, good governance, Islamic views

    ada 15 hal, kepanjangan buat di blog, kalo mau nanti dikirim via email saja. kebijakan ini (hanya menayangkan abstrak, maksimal bag introduction-nya saja, pen) juga berlaku untuk semua makalah yang di-publish di blog ini…

  3. lack of money visiting london…ck,ck,ck..rira..rira…malangnya nasib mu nak..:)

    minta full papernya donk ra..abstraknya keren, -seperti biasa- anti mainstream dengan perspektif yang bergaya rira banget..
    udahlah ra ga usah jadi fisikawati,jadi politisiwati saja..,kayaknya lebih cocok..hohohohoho

  4. nambah deh ra..oh ya ra, gw ngirim paper buat International Youth Leadership Conference 2009 di prague tapi ga lolos nie.ntah karena terlalu standar isinya atau bahasanya tapi mohon bantuannya deh buat mengkaji macam2 kayak gitu..di IYLC yang juni mau ikutan ngirim lagi kayaknya,mohon bantuannya ya..

  5. saya minta juga full papernya,

    masih blom kebayang korelasinya ‘integrating system’ to good governance, but the term ’employee and employer relation’ is really has a good point. nice paper..

  6. buat semua…iya nanti dikirim iA, tapi jujur it wasn’t nice ato keren. masih ditulis dg metode biasa,kejar deadline. abstrak ditulis sejam, makalah ditulis 3hr d tgh kerjaan lain-lain, jd kajian kurang mendalam dan cukup banyak adopsi pemikiran orang lain. i’m sorry. jadi mohon kritik dan masukannya, terlebih untuk konsep yang dituang dlm paper tersebut, bisa jadi bahan diskusi yang menarik
